The Blue Jays took on Kansas City at Kaufman Stadium, and prevailed on a light-schedule night 7-3. Cavan Biggio, Randall Grichuk, and Teoscar Hernandez hit bombs. However, this night was about the debut of Bo Bichette; which gives the Jays three second-generation big leaguers.
And in his debut, Bichette didn’t wait long to get his first big league knock.

Good little scouting report on Bichette over here at Fangraphs.
As for Vladimir Guerrero Jr., he singled in his first plate appearance on a liner to center, and then didn’t do much else the rest of the night. He’s still holding steady – and with a torrid hot streak or great month – he could find himself knocking at the door of a decent rookie season.
Finally, let the record state that this was the day I traded for Vlad Jr. in my keeper fantasy league I run. Gleyber Torres, and Max Scherzer; I thank you for your contributions.
